Persuasion_6_2“All the privilege I claim for my own sex (it is not a very enviable
one; you need not covet it), is that of loving longest, when existence
or when hope is gone.”

Persuasion, volume 2, chapter 11

I’ve posted some thoughts on the movie over at Following Austen. I wanted to love it, but didn’t. Would love to know what you thought.
